I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

A Winter Walk

I am so cold
every part of me
blue and numb
stunned silent
and struck dumb
by the frost
covering my body
like a blanket
of hurt and tingling
little reason
to continue
all I need
is a fire
and warm hearth
a blanket
and cup
of soup
need to call forth
some kind of bravery
in the face
of the storm
but I've been
long before
the storm
crushing me
